While the existing Dunes course is reminiscent of a classic Scottish links course, El Cardonal will remind golfers of the old-style California courses that Tiger grew up playing. Golfers of all skill levels will have several options to navigate each hole, and proper strategic decision making will be rewarded. The existing arroyos that traverse the site and well-placed fairway bunkers will provide ample risk-reward opportunities off the tees. Players will often have to make a decision as to whether to try to carry a hazard resulting in a better approach angle or take the safer route leaving a longer shot to a green. Natural, irregular contours on the wide fairways along with high-faced, greenside bunkers will further enhance the course's old-style look and feel. With 18 truly unique green complexes, the end result will be a memorable and enjoyable golf experience.
